Event organizers said, “Earning an Oscar nomination for the score, the spellbinding and masterful music composed by John Williams became a celebrated classic, conjuring beautiful, soaring motifs continuing the adventures of Harry Potter and his friends on their magical journey.”
Justin Freer, president of CineConcerts and producer/conductor of the “Harry Potter Film Concert Series,” explained, "The ‘Harry Potter’ film series is a once-in-a-lifetime cultural phenomenon that continues to delight millions of fans around the world.
